For all you people with a sweet tooth... I have something sweet AND healthy for you this week! No-bake blueberry snickerdoodle oat balls (longest recipe name ever). I am usually always craving something sweet so these have been a staple in my diet each week to satisfy my constant sweet tooth. I also have a chocolate peanut butter recipe which I will be sharing with you soon. I still have yet to perfect the recipe... But they MIGHT just end up being better than these ones. Stay tuned for next weeks what's on my plate post if you want to find out :)
So I've been making these no-bake oat balls for a couple months now and have tweaked the recipe each time. This recipe is the winner in my opinion. They are awesome for a quick, on-the-go snack, dessert, or even on the side of your breakfast. Last week I even crumbled one on top of my oatmeal in the morning!
Here's what you'll need for the blueberry oat balls:
- 80g Organic gluten free rolled oats
- 10g Organic chia seeds
- 40g Trader Joe's dried blueberries
- 60g Wegman's organic creamy peanut butter
- 40g PEScience snickerdoodle protein (can be replaced with vanilla protein)
- 5g Organic unsweetened coconut flakes
- Combine all the dry ingredients (besides the coconut flakes) into a bowl and mix together.
- Melt the peanut butter in a separate bowl (about 30 seconds in the microwave) and pour into the dry mixture.
- Mix the peanut butter into the dry ingredients thoroughly. It's going to be super dry so this next part is very important.
- Add SMALL dashes of water to the mix until the consistency is a little more wet. Keep in mind that you should be able to roll the mixture into little balls. So too much water would be no bueno. This is what it should look like:
- Roll the mixture up into about 1 inch balls. My batch made 12 so make sure they aren't too big!
- Then, roll the balls in the coconut flakes so the outside is covered.
- Put the balls on a baking sheet and leave them in the fridge for about 30 minutes. They are best at a chilled temperature so I would suggest that you keep them in the fridge!
Macronutrients for one oat ball:
Macros are on point for this recipe. Perfect ratios and super macro-friendly! These are so freaking good. Someone should pay me to make these for them. Ha.... But on a serious note good luck only eating one of them! Last week I ended up eating 4 in one day once.... Oops. But it fit my macros so it's cool ;)
Hope you enjoy this recipe guys! Let me know if you decide to make them and be sure to post & tag Be Well Blueprint!
Live well, be well.
